Yorkshire Sculpture Park

On our rather epic Easter Bank Holiday Monday which I mentioned in my Easter Weekend post (and promised you this post soon... I won't mention that this is 3 weeks later if you don't!) Rich, my sister and I woke up to see a glorious day, so we decided to make the most of the first properly sunny day of the year and head to the Sculpture Park, which of course is somewhere I found out about on a blog. I can't remember who's it was though, but I thought it would be nice to go for a walk with something other than the usual picturesque Yorkshire scenery to look at.

We grabbed a map from the visitor centre and headed out on a bimble around, trying to do a route which would take us past the most sculptures. Are you prepared for a self-indulgent blogger photo dump? Here we go!

 Random shapes stacked on top of each other.

A very apt bunny, considering it was Easter Weekend.

A screen with a running horse on it. Not all sculptures are static apparently.

A load of garden furniture on a tree made out of metal. Of course.

I actually really loved this piece because it was mathematical and square. I'm such a nerd.

Arty tree shot.

Stepping stones! Which I didn't fall off, much to Rich and Nat's disappointment.

Man on a tree.

Eerily realistic man looking at his phone. This says so much about society today, it was my other favourite piece, probably because it was the only one I understood.

We also managed to take some really nice pictures of Nat and I. We don't often get chance to take pictures of the two of us, so there aren't many, especially of us as adults. Even though we still feel like teenagers most of the time! I really did have the most amazing Easter weekend with Nat, I'm really lucky that we get on so well, considering we shared a bedroom for 18 years with many many arguments! 

I realise this has been a totally self indulgent post full of pictures Rich and I took at the Sculpture Park, but it is a really nice place to have a walk around on a nice day, so I do recommend that you go and visit.
